100 Days Project

jeni: A scribble a day and things/people I love

A series of small sketches with watercolour wash, to see how good I can get at it after 100 days of practice. I started a while ago and for a few days I had gusto and enthusiasm, but as with previous hobbies, once I started being critical and disappointed, I lost confidence and stopped bothering. I might add a journal entry here and there, but for the most part it will be the pencil and the watercolour. I am looking forward to the discipline that commitment - to the 100 Days Project - brings out in me. I have way better staying power with a bit of a push.

Day 7:


There is this truly beautiful Aloe-y thing which has just flowered down by the driveway. I don't think I have ever noticed it flowering before. I did a quick sketch and then it started to rain so it's mostly from memory and probably doesn't look much like what it actually is now. And how did I manage to paint at this time of the day? You'd think the kids were asleep. But no, they are also painting and taking pictures of their artworks with the iPad, just like mummy.

Seven days down, folks. May I be this committed seventy days from now.
